NEW shops are finally on the way for Boyne Island and Tannum Sands residents with the first store to open at 1 Pacific Ave on Saturday.

Gladstone Regional Council approved the development application for the complex on July 18, 2013.

The area has been under development for 20 residential units and five stores since then.

At the time the council received 44 submissions in support of the development and 21 opposing.

Exclusively LeaLeighs - a clothing, accessories and homewares store - will be the first to open on Saturday.

Australian proprietary company PACAV Holdings Pty Ltd, director and landlord Sandra Waterson said the development was "far superior" to anything had been seen before.

"It used to be Smith's Grocery and Corner Store and that's what it was actually built for. It has passed on to various hands since then," she said.

"Once all the shops are there, they will complement each other rather than compete," Ms Waterson said.

"It's now a venue to go to rather than just a one-off shop.

"It's exciting to see the whole project come to fruition."

Exclusively LeaLeighs owner Deb Cornish has been busy all week in preparation.

She has lived in the Tannum Sands region for 12 years.

After having worked from two temporary stores at Boyne Island and the Gladstone Central Square Plaza, she is proud to call the Tannum home.

"I love the view, the sea breeze and just the ambience," she said.

She started her business by travelling to markets to sell her products.

WHAT'S COMING:

Confirmed:

  • Fish and chip shop due to open by Easter. The shop will not have the same owners as the store that last operated near the site
  • Exclusively LeaLeighs clothing, accessories and homewares store

Tentative:  

  • Exclusive beauty shop with laser treatments and facials
  • Coffee shop and gelato bar

Unknown:

  • Tenders for a restaurant are still being accepted
